Site Information 

 

The site is a 86,000 sq metre Arkose Sandstone quarry in the Otway Ranges. Located in the Colac Otway Shire Council. The Quarry has been in operation since the late 19th century as a source for local stone to use in road and rail building.

Just outside the Victorian township of Beech Forest, The Quarry sits on a long ridge-line within the Otway Ranges running east-west.

The Quarry is still under licence and currently going through rehabilitation.
